                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt COLLUSION COVE will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as EX OBLIVIONE is pushed out of top team by THE BROTHERHOOD, who came 
from 4th with a 5-0-1 this turn.  THE BROTHERHOOD stable has parlayed this turn's 
5-0-1 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, SEYDJINN fought TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and gained 19 points 
and contributed to THE BROTHERHOOD's 5-0-1.  NIALL has lost to AHKEEM, falling 12 
points, while helping make EX OBLIVIONE a 1-4-0 turn.  And all eyes were on PERFECT 
SNOTLING this turn as it ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  COLLUSION COVE has a 
new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Blind Cyclops Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Congratulations go out to EX OBLIVIONE, with ORLA GREY revenging a 
bloodfeud against DONOLD DOG of RED DOG GANG.  Is it really true that COLLUSION COVE 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, COLLUSION COVE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in COLLUSION COVE, but never 
good to wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in 
COLLUSION COVE again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Kismet -- You know, us dogs aren't into that kind of thing.  We live in the now and
don't worry about consequences. -- Donold Dog
P.S.  You might want to try it:  the low-stress lifestyle.

Cloudgazer -- Oh, well, I suppose you figured if I was Duelmaster, I wouldn't know
what to say, and you're probably right.  Lassie, now, she's a Star and knows how to
communicate with people, but I'm just a big old mutt. -- Flummax
P.S.  Very good if you want someone sat on.

Imoto-Chan -- Do you suppose people pick on me because I'm blonde? -- Lassie
P.S.  It's all natural.

Gateau -- That sweet stuff, I can't handle it.  Makes my teeth hurt.  So I was
proactive in my biting. -- BB Bully Boy

Jrk -- Even a cat wouldn't consider that a proper name. -- Little Big Dog

     Sorry, missed this at the end of the spotlight last time--

Trevor, manager of Hollen Katze -- Is it amusing for you, Trevor, to train your
warriors to be homicidal psychopaths?  Be wary, for I shall have eyes spying from
every roof top.  My men shall be around every corner.  Do not rest, for I shall look
for every opportunity to do you ill. -- Godric Manesson DaVinci
